In this Centre of Mass and Linear Momentum section of Physics we cover the topics listed in the table below, each topic has a written tutorial (which you can read on your screen, print to read or use a web reader), a video tutorial, revision notes, revision questions and supporting calculators which allow you to check your own computations and calculations.
|6.1||Centre of Mass. Types of Equilibrium|
|6.2||Determining the Centre of Mass in Objects and Systems of Objects|
|6.3||Newton's Second Law for System of Particles|
|6.4||Moment of Force. Conditions of Equilibrium|
|6.6||Collision and Impulse. Types of Collision|
|6.7||Law of Conservation of Momentum and Kinetic Energy|
|6.8||Momentum and Impulse in Two Dimensions. Explosions.|
This section is about equilibrium and quantities that are relevant to it. By understanding the various types of collision, you will be able to understand concepts such as the centre of mass (gravity), moment of force, torque, linear momentum and impulse, as well as the laws of conservation of momentum and kinetic energy in one and two dimensions.
In addition to the Centre of Mass and Linear Momentum tutorials, we also provide online Centre of Mass and Linear Momentum Calculators which allow you to calculate specific Centre of Mass and Linear Momentum formula in support of the tutorials or to check and verify your own calculations in support of your homework, coursework or thesis.
The following Physics Calculators are provided in support of the Centre of Mass and Linear Momentum tutorials.
